Spicy Roasted Chickpeas
Enjoy these spicy roasted chickpeas as a nutritious and crunchy snack. Make your own homemade spices or use my trick of buying a perfect seasoning mix.
- 15- ounce can Chickpeas
- 1 ½ teaspoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon salt
- Easy Version: 1 tablespoon Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning or your choice of seasonings described above
- Scratch Version: 1 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, ½ teaspoon turmeric, and ¼ teaspoon cumin
Preheat your oven to 400°F/204°C. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.
Drain the chickpeas in a strainer, shaking it to remove excess water. Spread the chickpeas out on a paper towel and pat dry. You can also just let them sit out for a few minutes to air dry.
Pour the olive oil into a bowl and add the chickpeas. Stir until each chickpea is coated with oil.
Easy Version: Sprinkle Mrs. Dash seasoning over the chickpeas. Stir until thoroughly coated.
Scratch Version: combine the spices in a bowl. Sprinkle over chickpeas, stirring until each is thoroughly coated.
Pour chickpeas on the prepared pan, spreading them out so they're not touching. Place the pan in the oven and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the chickpeas are crispy on the outside.
Remove the chickpeas from the oven and allow them to cool slightly before adding salt and pepper to taste.
